Located at Scout Trillo Quezon City a few streets away from GMA Channel 7. Green Pigs Kitchen is a cozy, intimate diner, filled with the most elegant tea sets I have ever laid my eyes on.

The store is brightly decorated and reminds me of an elegant French Tea Room. Green Pigs Kitchen started out as a Cafe/Coffee shop October 2013, but branched out to healthy prepared comfort food using old tried and tested family recipes in their menu.

My Zomatoph family invited me to attend this intimate gathering of Foodie Bloggers to sample and experience Green Pigs Kitchen. They made a special menu for us. This shop is just perfect for an intimate gathering with friends, it can house around 40 people comfortably and offer packages for these events. You can actually request them to customize a menu for you. Looking at the venue itself, It is perfect for baptisms, bridal showers, Lolita Tea Parties (I would attend if invited) or you can rent it to propose to your beloved.

Such a great variety of flavors assaulted me. Everything was so beautifully plated, piping hot when it got to our table (except for dessert of course). This is just a menu set they prepared for us Zomato Foodies and there are a lot more in their menu you can choose from.

I would like to take list my favorites from this menu that I told myself I would partake again another time.

Appetizer: Baked Caprese Dip (165php) Warm melted mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes with Garlic Bread – I love this, I could have just this dish and I would be very happy. Like my son I love cheese and fresh tomato instead of crushed/chopped ones gives this dip an extra bite to it.

Main Entree: Baby Back Ribs (435php) Fall-off the bones baby back ribs basted in home-made (as in family secret) barbecue sauce. I loved the aroma of this dish! When I cut the meat, I did not have to do a lot of slicing, I could have used my fork because it was so tender. I loved that the flavors go through and through the meat and not just the skin or top part of the meat. According to the owners, they make it a point to select their meats and produce to make certain they have the leanest and freshest food to serve to their clients. The mashed potatoes are heavenly good and seasoned just so (not to peppery) and the veggies that came with it is so fresh they are crunchy! Truth, my mouth is watering as I write this just thinking about having these again. My husband, a certified carnivore would love this. Adding this to my list of restaurants to take my family to.

Baked Creamy Sole (260php) Low-fat cream topped on fillet and baked until bubbly and brown. They won me over with the low-fat cream, it is actually so good, it melts in your mouth. I am not really a fish person, in fact I hardly ever order fish when dining out but I enjoyed this a lot. I can finish this on my own without rice lol.

Dessert: Creme Brûlée, rich custard base dessert topped with a contrasting layer of hard caramel. Creamy, not too sweet.

Afternoon Tea

Vintage Afternoon Tea

After a scrumptious meal, we were treated to their Vintage Afternoon Tea this set has Finger Sandwiches Bacon Lettuce and Tomato, Ham and Cheese, Cucumber and Cream Cheese, Egg Salad, Tuna, Cheese and Red Pepper, Scones, Brownies, Lemon Square and Mini Cakes. Along with a selection of fragrant tea you can choose on your own.
GP14 This is not my first tea party, so I pretty much know how to go about having the tea (had the Moroccan mint) and whenever possible I have a scone or two which I really love with cream and jam.

We were also served these delicious cupcakes from Joanie`s Cupcakes

My favorite set

Beautiful Tea Cup Set that I have my eye on!

The ambiance inside Green Pigs is very relaxed, somewhat formal actually I would have preferred to come here dressed up (Gothic-Loli Style) and have tea with same dressed ladies and talk about manga, anime and loli fashion… but this is just me being me.

I am thankful to Zomatoph for introducing me to such a unique dining place.

If you love healthy delicious comfort food and desserts, French tea room ambiance or just a quiet place to dine; Green Pigs Kitchen is the perfect place for you.
